Food

  • All breakfasts and 2 dinners are included. Breakfasts are continental and will include tea and coffee, cereals, juice, croissants, yoghurt, bread and jam. For lunch we recommend our group either buys provisions from the local minimarket, such as bread, cheese, cold meats etc or buy an ready made sandwich in the local boulangerie. A budget of around €6 per day is reasonable for this, not including drinks, though drinking water here is not expensive. The included dinners will be taken in the restaurant at our hotel, which serves mainly French cuisine, including local specialties. Please note that no drinks are included with dinner, but the hotel has a well stocked bar with a good range of regional wine. On other evenings you are free to try some of the tasty local cuisine in one of the nearby restaurants. There is a good range of restaurants in the village, including a creperie, a pizzeria and more traditional establishments serving fondue, cassoulet and other traditional cuisine. If you are a vegetarian or have any other special dietary requirements please advise us when you book.
